Game notes: What looked like a ho-hum game on paper a few weeks back now has some genuine interest, with both teams coming off strong wins. Gold Coast has won two in a row and sit just a game (plus some percentage) outside the top eight, while Carlton’s upset win over Greater Western Sydney has put some extra spark in their season. The Blues have won four games and been ultra competitive in many others this season. The teams met in round four with Tom Lynch’s seven goals proving the difference, but Carlton has one of the most resolute defences in the League and will have done plenty of homework on the Suns’ spearhead. Gold Coast is still missing running defender Jarrod Harbrow through suspension, but is essentially at full strength and should sneak over the line on its home ground.
Mottsy’s Tip: Carlton by 5 points.
